    Will it be that big of a difference on my arm ?

    You said you can only find 4U so it shouldn't be a problem. 3U might be a significant difference.

    Actually, now I can find the 3U version, which I prefer to use if I get the VT80. THen, do you think the 3U ArcSaber10 still has a decent amount of power ?

    For me, arc10 (3u) is a even balance and slightly head heavy racket maybe, the smashes improves when your skills improves, smashes doesn't really depend on what racket you're using(maybe a little), go try those racket on your own and pick what racket you like, different people different feeling, that's all i can say

    Unfortunately, I don't really have a chance to try out rackets. I have tried my friend's ArcSaber 8DX. I definitely like it better than my MP30 with a bit more weight at the top and stiffer shaft.

    You might wanna just use an 8dx instead of arc 10 (just to make your decision harder). Realistically you should be able to handle any racket you pick and at the top end of the spectrum there really is no wrong choice just some maybe 1-2% better choices.

    a game of smashes, drops, and net, lol, that's almost all the shots, just kidding i personally find the arc 10 sluggish to move around for doubles and is not as good as the VT80. and since the shaft on the arc10 is more flexible than the vt80, it might not allow you to recover as quickly after a swing.

    vt 60 is also fun to play with. It's somewhere between the arc 10 and vt 80. Very light racket with reasonable power. Slightly head heavy and flex.

    But to be serious all the racket you mention is better then mp30 i think. Whetever you choose it will be an upgrade.

    Hello,
    I hope this is not too late.
    I was playing 1 year with an ArcSaber 10(3U/G3) and now since a half year, I am playing with the Voltric 80 (3U/G3).
    For myself, I have to say that I had to train my wrist muscle at first after the change to the Voltric 80 to handle it. But already after 2 weeks of playing with the VT80, I feel that my smashes coming harder. No lost of control at the net or something like that anyway. For me, the VT80 is the best racket ever.
    Try the VT80 - don't be disappointed after the first two sessions - keep playing for at least 2 weeks - and be impressed

    Hope this helps you.

    No, there is absolut no difference in the technical specifications.
    It's just the painting.

    Phew. That's what I thought but the info just scared me since I just ordered the LTD version since I liked the color a bit better.
